All about Leon...
Leon Thomson is an enthusiastic and exciting young talent with a huge passion for magic, illusion and tricks of the mind. His reputation and status as a magician has grown rapidly and Leon is a popular and in demand performer within the UK.
Leon's keen interest in magic was cemented after seeing a magician at a holiday camp when he was only 5 years old. Born and bred in North London, he joined the Young Magicians Club at the age of 10 where he trained hard and used the experience to develop his magic and performance skills. Leon is a member of The Magic Circle.
Leon created and performed his own illusion at a table tennis club in Barnet, where to the absolute astonishment of the onlookers, he walked through a locked glass door. The live footage subsequently went viral on YouTube bringing Leon praise from high profile magicians, his school and viewers of the illusion across the world. Leon considers Derren Brown a huge inspiration and counts David Blaine as one of his followers on Twitter! Leon also made a table tennis table disappear whilst playing a rally with a champion.
As well as magic, Leon loves to play table tennis, competing at a respectably high level and has combined this with his skills as a magician to fascinate TV viewers at the Sky Sports World Championship of Ping Pong, even tricking some of the top international legends of table tennis, including the highly revered Chinese national team. Leon is the resident magician for the national governing body for the sport 'Table Tennis England', recently performing at the 2016 Senior National Table Tennis Championships and at the ITTF 2017 World Championships in Germany.
Leon is a magician for 'Spread a Smile' charity, where he entertains seriously ill children and teenagers in hospitals such as Great Ormond street and University College London Hospitals.
